Basketball recruiting and transfers continue to be a trending topic in the college sports world. Virginia’s program is not immune to the chatter. UVa coach Tony Bennett picked up a big transfer commitment from South Carolina forward Anthony Gill to help fill some of the roster void created when KT Harrell and James Johnson left the Cavaliers’ program during this past season. Naturally Hoo fans are excited about the addition of Gill, who also visited Ohio State before picking Virginia.
